2008 NFL Prospects: A Closer Look

April 26-27 at Radio City Music Hall.

Football fans must go from February to September without the NFL on the field. From the final horn at the Super Bowl until training camp opens toward the end of summer, there is a huge void to be filled on Sundays. Fortunately, for two days in April, NFL fans around the world are given the gift of the draft. Once again, the NFL shines in the spotlight.

And with the draft comes the intense studying, scouting, performances at the combine, everything to give fans the ammunition for their equally intense debates on which player their favorite team should take. Will it be a future Hall of Famer or a draft bust?

As the 2008 draft draws even closer, we've hosted several chats with big names from the experts' big boards. Take a closer look at what they had to say because you might be rooting for one of these guys very soon -- or booing his selection mercilessly come draft day!
